THE ENQUIRY BEGINS

Besides he was so very strange that day that I preferred not to say anything. I dared not do it."
" `Dared not'!" repeated Royston. "That is a strange remark, Baron. What are you keeping from me? "
" Well, monsieur, I see I will have to tell you all," said the poor old man. " I had wished to save itbut you will have to know, I suppose."
He told Royston of the cruel unkind way in which Carl had spoken to him that night after the letters had been recovered ; and on other occasions too. He explained that he had been rude to Bunny and Ajax as well.
" And his memory, too," he finished. "It was getting dreadful. Why! he couldn't even remember things that had happened the week before the ball-he quite forgot that he had met Mr. Bernaldi at lunch!"
This was news to Royston. He saw, however, that there was very little more to learn from the old Baron. But the `lost memory' part of the affair impressed itself on his mind.
" By the way," he said as this caused a new thought. "Will you tell me your own honest opinion about that drugging business? "
" To you, m'sieu, I will speak my heart," assured the other. " I always believed, and still do believe that the wine was the cause of all the trouble. I knew of nothing wrong with the fish ! The cook said nothing to me. But I did not doubt Carl's story. Why should I? What had he to hide from me-and why should I think he had anything to hide? "
Royston could see the sense of that, and did not press the point.
" And you thought it might be the wine?" he repeated. "So you agree that you were drugged?"
